Today, finally after too many months to admit to, I rode Frank!! Hurray! When I came over to the yard, he called to me while he was in the field and normally he would have come over but this time he turned away which surprised me. However, he wasn’t a problem at all to catch. My intention was just to go out for 15 / 20 mins just to get the buck out of him and see how he felt. I was expecting him to be very hyped and spooky (and he did spook – watch my intention…!) but when we walked off, he was very rounded but not bum high. He looked amazing in the window! Anyway, we walked down the lane and he felt really good. We didn’t go far and when we turned back he felt good and pretty relaxed, striding out nicely.
It was great to be on him again and I hope that he is keen again tomorrow and doesn’t walk off when I call him!
